Making ABT's and reheating?

    I've got a company picnic next weekend, and I was going to bring some ABT's. However, I won't be able to do them the day of. I was curious if and how you would tackle this. I haven't had much luck reheating ABT's in the past, but if there's ever any left it's one or two, and I just put them in the microwave. How would a batch hold up being reheated in the oven??

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Edit: it's a picnic, not a pickup, lol
     
  2. That's a good question, as I always seem to cook more ABT's than necessary - as if that's possible? [​IMG]

    I've been just re-heating them at home or work in a microwave oven - and they're never as good as when the first come off the CG. However, I don't know of a better way to do it a day or two after the original cook?

    I've never tried reheating but if you have leftovers...try them cold right out of the fridge...AWESOME!

    They never seem to reheat as good as when they come off fresh.
    Best way I have found is reheated on the smoker, offset on a grill would probably work too but other than that I haven't found a really good way to reheat them.

    You are correct they are never as good reheated but I have had pretty good success reheating them in the oven. They seem to get pretty soggy if you reheat them in the microwave.
     
  6. When I bring into work for lunches I warm them up in a crock pot.

    I think the reason reheated ABTs kind of turn some people off is that the bacon gets limp. If you could reheat them in an oven then pop them under a broiler for a few minutes to crisp the bacon, that would be work good, I think.

    I was hoping for a new and better way to re-heat the ABt's for I haven't found a good way yet and we just eat them right out of the refrig. Now the broiler sounds pretty good to me. I really don't care for the micro that much.
